  3. The audio guide packed up as I was in the main gallery unfortunately but all was well once I found my way to the exit through the gift-shop.

    I don't know tbh Rick. I guess the chassis sizes would be, and it seems he only had one set of designs for the motorhome, so it may be!

  19. Great stuff Malc:thumbsup: I love his "engineering drawings" he used to build it with. If it had been built in Germany it would have taken about 6 months just to produce some acceptable blueprints for the engineers in a spotless factory. He's just roughed out a quick sketch and disappeared into his shed!:)

    Absolutely, but I have a feeling he took in a lot of detail when he visited autotrail, because his vans were identical to the autotrail apache. These days they would have sued him!
